Wooing Tree – Tickled Pink – 2015
Wooing Tree Tickled Pink 2015 “Better late than never”
100% Pinot Noir grapes were late harvested on 13th May 2015 allowing them time to ripen fully and produce a considerable amount of sugar. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics. The ferment was then stopped to retain a residual sugar of 105g/l. It has attractive aromas of strawberries and raspberries on the nose. Intense flavours of red berry, hints of stone fruits and pink grapefruit show on the palate, with great body and lingering finish. This wine is a perfect match with desserts or cheeses and can be enjoyed on its own.
